Motherwell take Kallum on loan

Motherwell have taken Huddersfield Town striker Kallum Higginbotham on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old is a former Falkirk forward whose loan spell at Carlisle ended in December.

Higginbotham was signed by previous Huddersfield manager Lee Clark after his man-of-the-match display in the Bairns' Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic, but Simon Grayson soon took over the reins at Town.

"I have gone down there and it's not worked out how I wanted it to," the former Accrington and Rochdale player said.

"I have come up here to ignite my career and I'm thankful to the gaffer for giving me this chance.

"People have different opinions and I just think I have not been given a fair chance at Huddersfield. That's just my own opinion. Every time I have pulled on the shirt I think I have done myself justice.

"I need to be playing. This is a good chance to get some minutes, hopefully get some goals and get the confidence back like when I was playing at Falkirk.

"Then I'll have 12 months left on my contract and who knows?"
